Section 4: First aid measures
Eye Exposure:
Irrigate eyes at eye wash station and repeat until pain free. Seek medical
attention immediately.
Skin Exposure:
In case of contact, wash with plenty of soap and water. If irritation persists seek
medical attention.
Inhalation:
If respiratory irritation or distress occurs remove victim to fresh air. Provide
oxygen if breathing is difficult. Seek medical attention if irritation develops or
persists.
Ingestion:
Do not induce vomiting. If victim is alert, give liquids such as milk or water. Seek
immediate medical attention. Do not leave victim unattended. To prevent
aspiration of swallowed product, lay victim on side with head lower than waist.
Medical conditions possibly aggravated by exposure: Inhalation of product may aggravate existing chronic
respiratory conditions.
Section 5: Firefighting measures
This product is an extinguishing media. No special protective equipment is required for fire fighters.

HMIS (hazardous materials identification system) rankings (as liquid): health = 3, flammability = 0,
reactivity = 0, personal protective equipment: eye and skin protection (see Section 8).
Section 6: Accidental release measures
For personal protection: Prevent skin and eye contact, see Heading 8.
Clean up: Use an absorbent material, to include but not be limited to, diatomaceous earth, kitty litter, or
saw dust, and sweep up. See Heading 12
3 Section 7: Handling and storage
Avoid eye, respiratory, and skin exposure. Use appropriate PPE (personal protective equipment) when
handling, and wash thoroughly after handling (Section 8). Keep product in original container until
packaging for use as extinguisher. Clean used equipment before storage. Use this product only in well
ventilated areas. Do not mix with other extinguishing agents.
Section 8: Exposure controls/personal protection
Respiratory protection: None expected to be needed, mechanical ventilation is recommended
Hand Protection: Use chemical resistant gloves when handling the product
Eye protection: Chemical goggles are recommended
Skin protection: Standard fire-fighting equipment should provide all necessary protection

Diethylene glycol monobutyl ether
Indirect photodegradation is about 50% in 3.5 hours
Aerobic degradation with adapted activated sludge is 60% after 28 days
COD = 2080 mg/g of substance
BOD5 = 250 mg O2/g substance
Theoretical oxygen demand = 2.17 mg/mg
Ethanol
